What part number did Heritage supply? 049109175 or 026109175A, because I think you will find that they are exactly the same.
The picture on the oemepc site referred to above, looks nothing like the actual part!
It will fit the top metal cover, but as mark1gls says - you have to remove the top cover in order to fit the bottom cover.
Top cover was removed to make way for the bottom. I will know more tomorrow and have some pics. They supplied 026109175A

That’s the later lower cover so that’s why it’s not fitting the original metal top cover.
Part 16.

A pic of the lower cover - 026109175A - that you were sent, would be good.
